  • 25th May 2024 13:00 - 18:00

Grampian Pride Village at Duthie Park from 1pm to 6pm

You will need a wristband to get into the village area.

Where do I get tickets? Tickets are available exclusively through our APP. Not only does this make it quicker and easier to get wristbands at the main gate, it also cuts out unnecessary costs through third-party apps. Meaning that we can concentrate on giving you a GREAT event.

How do I exchange my ticket for a wristband?Once you have ordered your ticket simply turn up at the Village from 1pm on Saturday 25th The main entrance is located at the bottom of the park, South Gate, There is a disabled entrance, for wheel chair users, to the West of the site, and VIP entrance through the North Gate.

What are VIP Tickets, and how much are they? VIP tickets are available for £10 each (early-bird), £12 from 25th April. A VIP ticket will allow you to exchange your ticket for a wristband early. This cuts out waiting times at the gate. VIP ticket holders also have a private gate (known as the north gate) to shorten queuing times. A VIP area is available at the front of the stage, this will allow you to get close to the performers and maybe even take some wonderful selfies afterwards. A VIP only bar is also available in this area. The cost of VIP tickets come straight back to the charity and therefore by having a VIP ticket you are contributing to the costs of the event directly.
